Meet The Team

Leonie Dykes (Founder of BodyMotion)

Leonie’s desire to set up BODYMOTION grew after disc protrusions in her spine led her to Pilates. 

After experiencing the remarkable impact Pilates had on her physical and mental well being an opportunity arose to take a different career path, and she became initially a Pilates Instructor. 

Her thirst for knowledge didn’t stop there. Leonie has multiple qualifications so that she is well-equipped to look after her clients as best as possible. 

She says the success of BODYMOTION is down to having an amazing team, all highly qualified and more importantly share a belief that looking after people’s bodies also means looking after people. 

She is also a keen sportsperson herself, loving nothing better than walking in the hills and mountains, running, Strength Training, Pilates, Yoga and cycling (when she has time time).

Lewis Faulkner

Lewis Faulkner is our amazing Sports Massage Therapist with an MSCI in sports and exercise therapy and Level 2 personal training. 

He found his vocation through personal injury. He attended multiple places to try and get a diagnosis, and many of them failed him. 

From there, he decided to take the matter into his own hands, and he is now able to look after himself and, most importantly, stop other people waiting to find a diagnosis for their own injury. 

Lewis has a sporting background, playing rugby whilst still participating at a lower level with a new team. 

He has experienced multiple different rehabilitation programs for injuries through his sport and can therefore empathise with clients who are at the starting stage of rehabilitation.

He says, “I promise it gets better, and I am willing to help you every step of the way through your recovery.”
